We are first time travelers to Ireland, and would like some advice.
We were planning to fly into Shannon and out of Dublin. Staying in Limmerick, Killarney, and Dublin. However, RIck Steves is really harsh on Killarney in his latest Guidebook. He says it is very unathentic and a tourist trap. What is your opinion on Killarney's authenticity?. Any suggestions for cities to stay in for an authentic Irish experience would be great. Planning on renting a car. We would like to stay in three- four cities. And fly into/out of Shannon/Dublin, and make our way across, to fly/into out of the oppsite airport.
We were planning to stay in larger cities (as mentioned above) and take day trips out by car. Thank you for your time!
